The Cape Recife Nature Reserve is situated at the southern western tip of Algoa Bay and offers beautiful beaches, natural dune vegetation of fynbos, rocky outcrops and a lighthouse which was commissioned in 1851.

Cape Recife Nature Reserve established in 1973 is a haven for birds and one of the hikes in the reserve is aptly named after the rare roseate tern which is one of seven tern species that are often sighted in the reserve.

Birders can gain a quiet vantage point from the bird hide and in addition to the chance to spot some of the 190 recurring species, small animal like otters might be seen.
